I'm pretty sure he didn't - i think he stopped school work at 17 (although obviously if he was carrying on from the scottish system.....)

He wouldn't have time with all his tennis.  Anyway, what would he need them for?

I'm pretty sure he didn't do them - he was in Barcelona from the time he was 15 wasn't he?
I'm sure he said he stopped his school work after a year or so to concentrate on the tennis....

Only Standard grades are compulsory! You can leave school when you turn 16.

I thought it was something random like, you can leave at the end of the term in which you turn 16? In which case, i think i'd have to stay on until the end of the first term of yr 12  confused  I don't know..... i could be talking rubbish Very Happy
